Immortal words!!

On the eve of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln spoke these immortal words:

“The Republicans inculcate, with whatever ability they can, that the Negro is a man, that his bondage is cruelly wrong, and that the field of his oppression ought not to be enlarged. The Democrats deny his manhood; deny, or dwarf to insignificance the wrong of his bondage; so far as possible, crush all sympathy for him, and cultivate and excite hatred and disgust against him; compliment themselves as Union-savers for doing so; and call the indefinite spreading of his bondage a sacred right of self-government.”

How did the Party of Lincoln ever lose the allegiance of the Black Community to the party of slavery, Jim Crow and Senator Robert Byrd: The Democratic Party?
